📒Visual Intelligence ✍ Amy E. Herman
📝Visual Intelligence Book Synopsis : An engrossing guide to seeing – and communicating – more clearly from the groundbreaking course that helps FBI agents, cops, CEOs, ER docs, and others save money, reputations, and lives. How could looking at Monet’s water lily paintings help save your company millions? How can checking out people’s footwear foil a terrorist attack? How can your choice of adjective win an argument, calm your kid, or catch a thief? In her celebrated seminar, the Art of Perception, art historian Amy Herman has trained experts from many fields how to perceive and communicate better. By showing people how to look closely at images, she helps them hone their “visual intelligence,” a set of skills we all possess but few of us know how to use properly. She has spent more than a decade teaching doctors to observe patients instead of their charts, helping police officers separate facts from opinions when investigating a crime, and training professionals from the FBI, the State Department, Fortune 500 companies, and the military to recognize the most pertinent and useful information. Her lessons highlight far more than the physical objects you may be missing; they teach you how to recognize the talents, opportunities, and dangers that surround you every day. Whether you want to be more effective on the job, more empathetic toward your loved ones, or more alert to the trove of possibilities and threats all around us, this book will show you how to see what matters most to you more clearly than ever before. Please note: this ebook contains full-color art reproductions and photographs, and color is at times essential to the observation and analysis skills discussed in the text. For the best reading experience, this ebook should be viewed on a color device.

📒Visual Intelligence For Crisis Management ✍ Alexandre Lucas Stephane
📝Visual Intelligence for Crisis Management Book Synopsis : Mostly a single person holistic (i.e. Design & Evaluation) four years effort, the current human-centered design research is close to current solutions employed for saving lives. Aligned with Visual Analytics US national security priority, it builds on state of the art 3D Geographic Information Systems that support situated decision-making and actions for Crisis Management, Emergency Management and Business Continuity. Compared to these existing solutions, further requirements are identified such as the possibility to interactively dive and explore the underground infrastructure of an emergency zone. Furthermore, since "main threats by essence are 3-dimensional (3D)" (Terje Johnsen, Division Head at the OEC/lFE/Halden Reactor Project), the main research topic focuses on combining 3D visual information related to the natural environment and natural events, with 3D visual information related to human creations, including analytics and technical systems, for providing comprehensive mission-critical situation awareness and support for communication during critical situations. The main contributions of the current research are the utilization of 3D gaming engines, that enable to dive and explore critical infrastructure situated underground beyond flying, and the proposed structured analytical visual framework that links various entities in the form of causality networks, process representations and what-if consequences in the same 3D interactive visual scene. Furthermore, the set of methods proposed for the formative evaluation of the 3D integrated interactive visual scene enables to gather user experience and feedback and also to provide a unique type of visual behavior in the form of visual patterns.

📒Image Segmentation Through Applied Visual Intelligence ✍ Robert T. Kania
📝Image Segmentation Through Applied Visual Intelligence Book Synopsis :
📝Handbook of Research on Teaching Literacy Through the Communicative and Visual Arts Book Synopsis : In an era characterized by the rapid evolution of the concept of literacy, the Handbook of Research on Teaching Literacy Through the Communicative and Visual Arts focuses on multiple ways in which learners gain access to knowledge and skills. The handbook explores the possibilities of broadening current conceptualizations of literacy to include the full array of the communicative arts (reading, writing, speaking, listening, viewing) and to focus on the visual arts of drama, dance, film, art, video, and computer technology. The communicative and visual arts encompass everything from novels and theatrical performances to movies and video games. In today's world, new methods for transmitting information have been developed that include music, graphics, sound effects, smells, and animations. While these methods have been used by television shows and multimedia products, they often represent an unexplored resource in the field of education. By broadening our uses of these media, formats, and genres, a greater number of students will be motivated to see themselves as learners. In 64 chapters, organized in seven sections, teachers and other leading authorities in the field of literacy provide direction for the future: I. Theoretical Bases for Communicative and Visual Arts Teaching Paul Messaris, Section Editor II. Methods of Inquiry in Communicative and Visual Arts Teaching Donna Alvermann, Section Editor III. Research on Language Learners in Families, Communities, and Classrooms Vicki Chou, Section Editor IV. Research on Language Teachers: Conditions and Contexts Dorothy Strickland, Section Editor V. Expanding Instructional Environments: Teaching, Learning, and Assessing the Communicative and Visual Arts Nancy Roser, Section Editor VI. Research Perspectives on the Curricular, Extracurricular, and Policy Perspectives James Squire, Section Editor VII. Voices from the Field Bernice Cullinan and Lee Galda, Section Editors The International Reading Association has compiled in the Handbook of Research on Teaching Literacy Through the Communicative and Visual Arts an indispensable set of papers for educators that will enable them to conceptualize literacy in much broader contexts than ever before. The information contained in this volume will be extremely useful in planning literacy programs for our students for today and tomorrow.

📒Computational Intelligence In Multi Feature Visual Pattern Recognition ✍ Pramod Pisharady
📝Computational Intelligence in Multi Feature Visual Pattern Recognition Book Synopsis : This book presents a collection of computational intelligence algorithms that addresses issues in visual pattern recognition such as high computational complexity, abundance of pattern features, sensitivity to size and shape variations and poor performance against complex backgrounds. The book has 3 parts. Part 1 describes various research issues in the field with a survey of the related literature. Part 2 presents computational intelligence based algorithms for feature selection and classification. The algorithms are discriminative and fast. The main application area considered is hand posture recognition. The book also discusses utility of these algorithms in other visual as well as non-visual pattern recognition tasks including face recognition, general object recognition and cancer / tumor classification. Part 3 presents biologically inspired algorithms for feature extraction. The visual cortex model based features discussed have invariance with respect to appearance and size of the hand, and provide good inter class discrimination. A Bayesian model of visual attention is described which is effective in handling complex background problem in hand posture recognition. The book provides qualitative and quantitative performance comparisons for the algorithms outlined, with other standard methods in machine learning and computer vision. The book is self-contained with several figures, charts, tables and equations helping the reader to understand the material presented without instruction.
